Family Shelters

Offering Hope to Families

The Salvation Army Center of Hope & Family Shelters programs are designed to provide food and emergency or transitional housing to men, women, or families in need. Underlying this program is a motivation to identify the causes of homelessness and work to alleviate or eliminate homelessness at its source.

During a stay at a Salvation Army shelter, clients will participate in programs and workshops developed to promote self-sufficiency and personal development. The Salvation Army also works with clients to help them transition into a more permanent housing situation.

On-site case workers develop, in cooperation with clients, an extensive goal-oriented program. Case workers continually motivate clients to meet these goals. In turn, clients are given responsibilities around the center, including cleaning details and other applicable tasks.
